In Stagecoach, the prostitute and outlaw Dallas and Ringo defy society’s definition of what it means to be a “bad guy” versus a “good guy.” Each is a victim of circumstance having lost their families to murderers. Through their actions both together and apart, they prove to be good people. This illustrates that society judges people by their jobs, not by their characters. This shows that the movie makers think civilization is bad. This idea would be popular in 1939 because many people were poor and didn’t want to be defined by their social standing.
“ Cole didn't trust anyone...” (15) Cole strongly didn't like his parents because the way they treated him. “ Cole would not let them hold his hands and feel how sweaty they were, he would not let them pretend they loved him.” Cole thinks everyone is helping him because they don't have a choice or their just doing it for themselves. Lots of people have a hard time with Cole because of his actions towards others. “Cole is a risk to our children and to our community.” (46) “that boy is dangerous,” she said. “next time he might kill someone…” (46) I feel toward Cole Matthews is he is a great boy that is smart and has the potential to be be a strong and responsible man.
Trickster Tales “It has been said, the cat declared, but I am hardly believe it, that you have the power to change into a rat or a mouse I confess that it seems utterly impossible.” Mater Cat said this quote in the trickster tale “Puss in Boots” when he wanted the ogre to turn into a mouse so he can eat the ogre so he can trick the king into thinking that the Marquis De Carabas owned the land and the castle.

Valencia portrays the average housewife and the general unhappiness of married couples. Edgar Derby shows how wars bring out the worst in people, and Bertram Rumfoord is symbolic of the apatheticness of officials who hold power. They are indifferent to how the consequences of their actions affect helpless citizens, and do not view the masses as ‘human’. Vonnegut’s intent in adding these symbolic roles is to deepen the meaning of the novel and to further carry the message of the theme to the reader. Valencia, who epitomizes the average housewife, also represents the unexpressed discontentment of many married couples.
“The cat, unnoticed, had crept up on muffled paws from Zeena's seat to the table…The cat… tried to effect an unnoticed retreat, and in doing so backed into the pickle-dish, which fell to the floor with a crash” (Wharton, chap 4). When Mattie moves in and her relationship with Ethan grows, she begins to break Zeena and Ethan’s marriage. Mattie moving in could be represented by the cat getting on the table. When the cat knocks over the dish, it breaks. This symbolizes that when Mattie got too close, Ethan’s marriage broke apart.

My source claims that poverty is a big problem in certain countries, yet most people aren't doing anything about it, they're too focused on themselves. Banksy claims that society is selfish and ungrateful. Mondays have become a big thing to be mad about anywhere, society seems to hate waking up early and doing work, yet in other countries people are dying due to lack of clean food. An argument that is linked with Idols of the tribe is society feeling like nothing is enough. Society feels that having to do tasks is just plain boring and makes life bad.
Jane hated that Mr. Rochester bought pretty jewelleries and dresses for her;” the more he bought me, the more my cheek burned with a sense of annoyance and degradation” (Brontë, 321). One can interpret this as Jane worries that the marriage would lessen her independence and put her at an inferior position. The fact that Mr. Rochester buys her all these things makes Jane feel objectified, and she could not tolerate it. Once again, this signals the feministic opinions that the character of Jane is associated with. Jane and Mr. Rochester does not get married during this section of the book, due to the fact that he is already in a marriage.
One type of harassment that women encounter are “male-dominated industries like construction, where women are seen as an interloper, and women experience high levels of harassment” (Golshan 2). Men have felt that women are taking their careers away from them and try to scare them away from wanting that specific career. The men have harassed women to make them feel inferior in the workplace and women feel that they cannot speak up against their actions. There are other industries that “have harassed women in low wage jobs, like hotel cleaners or farm workers, experience high levels of harassment because they do not have the bargaining power to push back” (Golshan 2). Women are scared because the level of power they do not have compared to their male co-workers.
